WSM to the rescue. Or what do you do when someone needs 10 - 10lb Pork Butts in 15 hours.

    So last week I had taken a Friday off from work and was doing a bit of work around the house when I got a call from

    a friend. Apparently his daughters caterer had suddenly backed out of the wedding he was supposed to cook for on Saturday.

    My friend called me in a panic. Could I help him. Well I said yes and immediately regretted it. My Lang was up at the Cabin so I

    didn't have time to grab it so that meant I was down to my WSM, a Green Egg and my Webber 22" Kettle. The problem was that

    he needed me to smoke 10 10lb Pork Butts and 10 Chickens to help out.

    Well I started out putting 8 of the pork butts on the WSM, 4 on top and 4 on the bottom rack.

    Then I put two on my Green Egg. 

    And the finished product coming off the WSM 

    The results were fantastic, I started all of the pork butts at 8:00 pm on Friday evening and pulled them off at 

    12:00 noon on Saturday. Let them all rest for 2 hours in my coolers and them pulled them at 2:00 and delivered them

    and the chickens all at 3:30 just in time for the reception at 4:00. I also provided a gallon of a vinegar mustard sauce for 

    the pork and a sweet barbecue sauce for the chicken. 

    All in all a good time and a chance to help a friend, but man I wish I had, had my Lang available. It would have been much easier to 

    have done all of this in one smoker rather then 3.

    I had taken both the Stumps Stretch and the Lang up to the Cabin for a big party that we do every year for Labor Day. I should have waited another week to take them but I wanted to get them up there while I had the time this year :)
  3. You sound like you have luck like me. If a problem can happen, it usually does...

    Nice job to adapt and overcome!

    The WSM is always reliable!!

    Great way to help a friend out. Those look de-lic-ious. Just need some Buns and a few gallons of Sweet Tea. [​IMG]
